I can't see it. I wonder why not. It seems like a very good thing (the video, that is).

It's on Markey's Congressional website, at The Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming.

I think the website is taking zillions of hits on the internet. It's going to cause some problems, hopefully minimal. I was able to stream the video from the Oil Gusher webcam on Internet Explorer, Opera, and Firefox browsers - one browser at a time. After I saw you had problems, I closed all 3 browsers.

I had trouble re-connecting. It took numerous re-trys over a few minutes for me to get a new connection to the webcam video stream, but I have it again. Definitely looks like millions of gallons per day.

No feed there, alink on that page said it was streaming on BP's website, nothing there either.
The Huffington Post said they had it their, however, zilch live feed @ The Huff.

If Huffington Post isn't running it then; A) something is wrong w/ the feed (if that's the case you would think someone would post a "having tech difficulties" yada yada) or B) something is wrong with the politics in having a live feed of a catastrophe of epic proportions playing out to millons.
